Frolunda defeated Fredrik Norrena and Linkopings handily today, crushing them 5-1. Norrena stopped just 17 of 22 shots faced in the loss. His record runs to 19-10-5 on the season. There are just two more games remaining in the Eliserien regular season. Linkopings could've pulled into a tie with Frolunda for second on the league table with a win, but now appear to be locked in as the third seed for the postseason.
No, not that Hedberg.
The Johnstown Chiefs today signed defenseman Jon Hedberg and announced that winger Joe Tallari has been recalled to Bridgeport of the AHL. Hedberg, a 6'0" 200 lb American born blueliner, just completed his senior season for York University in the Canadian CIS where he led his team in scoring with 22 points in 23 games. Prior to college Hedberg played three seasons in the OHL between Guelph, Oshawa and Sault Ste Marie. His career season in junior came in 2000-2001 when he scored 8 goals and 30 points in 65 games between Guelph and Oshawa. Hedberg was teammates in Oshawa with Lightning defenseman Paul Ranger from 2000-2002. The native of Duluth, Minnesota was undrafted out of junior.
